This middle Tweed at Ravenswood has one of the most magnificent settings possible. It lies below Scotts View made famous by Sir Walter Scott. This was his favourite spot to stop his carriage and gaze out over the river Tweed meandering below
him through the beautiful border countryside
The fishing includes one and a half miles of the right bank with eight named pools. Nearly all of it is fishable and it copes well with low water, whilst still containing sufficient fishing for high water conditions. 20lbs+ salmon are caught each year from this beat. Fishing is available from £55.00 per rod per day. For more information
Anglers wishing to fish the Middle Tweed may wish to book accommodation at the Roxburgh Hotel, one of Scotland’s finest country house hotels. Non fishing guests may wish to take advantage of the health and beauty breaks at the hotel.
Upper Floors has consistently proved to be one of the top beats on Tweed, with a 10 year catch average of 449 salmon and grilse, the vast majority of which are caught on the fly. 2004 proved to be a tremendous season resulting in a total catch of 690 salmon/grilse – the highest since the mid sixties. Both the records for the best day and best week for the beat were broken in September with 41 salmon/grilse and 114 salmon/grilse respectively.
